APLF Dubai: ILM Conference ‘Future Trends in a Post-COVID Leather Industry’

After an absence of two years, APLF will take place from March 30 to April 1, 2022 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. To mark the return of the most international trade fair in the global leather industry, ILM has partnered with APLF to present a half-day conference Future Trends in a Post-COVID Leather Industry on March 29.

During this conference Royal Smit & Zoon will host a conversation about ‘Enabling positive change in the leather industry’.

Enabling positive change in the leather industry

Florian Schrey, Account Director Brands & OEMs at Royal Smit & Zoon, will speak on the company’s belief in the power of the collective and why it is convinced that, together, the industry can form an alliance to endorse the image of leather, battle misinformation and really make an impact.

“We would like to exchange views on how an alliance could act to benefit all of us in the leather industry, and how we can ensure leather to be perceived as the innately sustainable material it is, by everyone in the leather value chain.”
